Now losers of 7 games in a row, the New York Knicks (3-11) are trying to avoid a collective panic.  After falling to the Los Angeles Clippers last evening, the Knicks held a team meeting in an attempt to right the ship.  The meeting lasted 20 minutes and after Carmelo Anthony spoke to the media.

"The easiest thing for us to do is just to crumble right now," Anthony said. "We are in a dark place but we have to get out of this. We just have to get out of it."

"We talked. Everybody talked......The players had a meeting, the coaches -- everybody had a meeting after the game. We had to talk. We're trying to figure it out together. We have to put four quarters together. We got to do it for one another. Right now the game is not for nobody. We're just not making it happen."

"They have to figure it out, and we have to help them figure it out," Anthony said. "I really don't know how we do that but we're going to keep trying and we're going to keep trying to figure this out. Them guys have to figure it out on their own, too, and along the way, we all have to be there for one another. The easiest thing would be for us to go our separate ways and separate this team in the locker room but we have to be here for one another right now. The hardest thing to do right now is to remain positive. I know it's tough but we have to do that."
